Till now, I was not aware about such a grand celebration in Lalbagh Botanical Garden. To me, Lalbagh was limited to a pandal which becomes highlighted during Ganesh Chaturthi in Mumbai i.e. 'Lalbagh k Raja'. But now, another Lalbagh has entered in my database regarding Botanical garden. I will surely visit this grand celebration whenever I visit Mysore during Republic Day occasion.
